Burnley hoping to build links with Asian community

This Is Lancashire: Sean Dyche Sean Dyche

BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche has revealed that the club is looking to develop links with the local Asian community.

The Clarets boss and his players visited a mosque in the town last week and Dyche is hopeful of enticing more people to come and watch his side play.

Dyche was speaking at the annual shareholders meeting held last night.

The Burnley manager said: “We took the team out to a mosque last week but to be authentic with it, it can’t be a press stunt.

“We took them behind closed doors.

“There’s a group from that mosque who have 10 season tickets now. They come regularly now.

“There is work going on.

“It’s not an easy one because there has been unrest here, before my time, and links have to be built slowly and in a proper fashion.

“It has to be authentic and that takes time, but we are making some links “There’s been a shift in the community.

“It’s fair to say they like their cricket but it’s changing.”

You buy your support at a tenner a time you cheap bottom-wipes. Your average gate receipts are lower than ours with an average crowd 1,900 bigger. And the efforts you made to bring in Asian support in the 1990's was also for financial reasons. You pulled 25,000 from a 107,000 population. We pulled 20,900 from a 73,000 population (both in the Prem). Do the Math dumbo. We pulled 29% of the population and that really is social cohesion. You pulled 23%, that's 26% less than we did. Your attendance was not a socially cohesive event - it was large six-fingered family together!

Loser.
